What more can i say about this album its the best i have in my collection, its the one i always come back to after hearing other lame albums and its the one i listen to when im feeling pissed off or just wanna enjoy myself. I own all the thrice albums and i believe this to be the best one. Dustins lyrics are always meaningful, emotional and intelligient whether he be screaming them or just singing melodically. But i personally feel that Teppei is the real star of this album with his amazingly catchy and complex sounding riffs that weave in and out with Eddie and Rileys bass and drum beats.
Kill me Quickly **** (great way to start the album off when the beat drops halfway through the song its amazing)
A Subtle Dagger *** (good, short song one of the hardest on the album)
See You in the Shallows ***** (one of my favs on the album great overall song everything fits in perfectly)
Betrayal is a symptom **** (good song starts very hard but has great lyrics, very poetic)
Deadbolt ***** (Oh my God! this is like the best song ever, definitely the best on the album, but that just says the quality of the album, words wont do it justice so just buy the album even if its just for this song it would be standout on any album trust me!)
In Years to come **** (First hearing this was the one song i probably disliked the most but it has a will grow on you and now i think its a great song)
The Red Death **** (The intro is off the hook!!! as is the solo halfway through the song, this is Teppei at his best)
A Living Death Upon Dead Minds ***** (Wow!!! if it wasnt for Deadbolt this would a standout song of the album along with See You in the Shallows.

The Illusion of Safety is the best album that Thrice has pumped out so far. The guitar is amazing. This CD could still be one of the top selling albums without any lyrics. You can feel the passion of the band flowing through the your speakers on every song. The difference between this album and The Artist in the Ambulance is that order in which it was written. For the Illusion of Safety, the instrumentals were written first. All of the guitar, bass, and drum parts were completed before the vocals were ever imagined. Dustin had to write each song so that it would fit-in with the instrumentals. On the Artist in the Ambulance, Dustin had written every song before any instrumentals were composed. The passion in The Illusion of Safety is mainly in the instrumentals, but that doesn't mean that the lyrics aren't heart-filled. Each song is extremely powerful and fun to listen to. If there you are looking for a CD that combines harcore, emo, punk, and a few other genres, buy this album. you won't regret it!

This is one of the few records that actually deserves a straight 5 stars. I've been listening to this one quite regularly since last summer. This is one of those discs that never gets old. Flawless, catchy, emotional, brilliant are a few words that come to mind. Lyrics don't get much more deep, original or incitful than these. I'm not really into punk, but the way they use hardcore elements in their music just sets it apart. The vocals are superb; the purfect combination of singing, harmony, and yelling. Sometimes punk sometimes metal. The lead guitarist has created stunning riffs that pull you into the music. Drums are punkish, but vary alot through each song. Favorite tracks are 1,3, 5 and 6. Although I find myself compelled to let it play all the way through cuz there are no losing songs here. If you like some of the more melodic metalcore stuff like Hopesfall and UnderOath; although they sound nothing like the latter two. There's a good chance you'll love Thrice. If not there's a good chance you'll love them anyway. Oh, and don't pass up see'n these guys live...they own ;)

First off, I see a lot of reviews stating that they're not exactly sure what emos is or sounds like. Defining emo is difficult, as it is a broad category, but it can be divided three ways:
Power pop (similar to geek rock) - Promise Ring, Weezer, etc.
Emo - Sense Field
Post-hardcore - Thursday, Texas is the Reason
While Thrice tends to capture a fair portion of the post-hardcore sound, I would say they're closer to punk and indie rock. "The Illusion of Safety" represents this amalgam with speed, aggression, and melody, perhaps more than the other two major releases, "The Artist in the Ambulance" and "Idenity Crisis".
Thrice separates themselves from other bands of these genres with their intricate strumming and patterns, ranging from the metal breakdown near the end of "To Awake and Avenge the Dead" to the bluesy intro of "So Strange I Remember You". The songs on this album are cleaner and catchier than those on the more hardcore-laden "Identity Crisis", while being less mainstream and metal-sounding than "The Artist in the Ambulance". Overall, my favorite release by Thrice, as it starts strong, ends strong, and kicks rear everywhere in between.
